Our History
The Yeppoon Croquet Club was formed in 1998 and Incorporated in 2000.  We are affiliated with Croquet Association of Queensland and are a not for profit organisation.
The goals of the Club are to conduct, foster and promote the playing of mallet sports on the Capricorn Coast which includes Byfield, Farnborough, Yeppoon, Emu Park, Zilzie and Keppel Sands.

In August 2005, the Club changed its name to The Capricorn Coast Mallet Sports Club Inc. to better reflect the area it serves and the range of games played.

Following a decision by the local Council, the Club moved from Cooee Bay to new courts at 24 Bowls Street Yeppoon in late 2008.  Play commenced there the following April.  This new location provides greatly improved facilities including a paved parking area, disabled toilets and an automatic watering system.  New shade shelters were added in 2011 and the old ones received a face lift.  The greens have improved every year and provide for great competition.
